3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample thanks to Armin. Dark chocolate brown pour, little carbonation and an aroma of chipotle peppers(and nothing else.) Flavor is light malt, spicy chipotle peppers and a nice smokey heat that lingers. Very good for a chili beer!

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours pitch black with a nice creamy mocha tan head and spiderweb lacing, beautiful beer. The aroma is very chocolatey with a spiciness in the background, peppery. The flavor is peppery up front, followed by chocolate, then smoky peppers (chipotles) and wood, very interesting. There is a definite jalapeno burn, especially in the back of the throat, this is one of the most interesting beers I have had in a long time, very experimental. The body is thick like chocolate milk, carbonation is low, finish is long, and spicy. Overall I haven’t had a beer that I was blown away like this in a long time, a winner for sure, or to quote Charlie Sheen "Winning". Loved it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #930 - January 20, 2014 - $8.00CAD for 12 oz. at #mondaynightbeers at the Underground Tap & Grill - Opaque dark brown/black pour with a bubbly head that fades quickly. Aroma is toasted oak, chocolate, espresso. Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth (could be the heat-heat). Palate is more chocolatey roasty malt, and a fiery chipotle heat. Rip-roaring spicy stout. Fantastic. Sessionable only for heat freaks I’m sure at 6.6%

Bottle from LCBO. Figs and dark fruit dominate the aroma. Super dark black. Taste of dark fruit, roasted grains, chocolate, and light smoke. Well balanced with a burn at the back of your throat. Thick full body. Quite good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Texas Ranger kaatuu lasiin mustana ja muodostaa ylleeen ruskean vaahdon. Näyttää nätiltä lasissa kauneine vaahtoineen. Tuoksussa on paahtunutta mallasta, suklaata ja kahvia. Maussa on hieman polttelevaa chiliä, paahtunutta mallasta, kahvia ja tummaa suklaata. Tässä on myös kuivaa katkeruutta. Olut on yllättävän paksu ja keskihapokas. Tässä oluessa tulisuus ei ole samallalailla kiusaavaa kuin esimerkiksi inkivääriä sisältävissä juomissa. Ne saavat sinut janoamaan jotakin muuta juotavaa, mutta tämä olut saa sinut janoamaan lisää Texas Rangeria. Tämä olut on täyttä Chuck Norrisia.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice deep chocolate brown that settles in black in the glass. The head is tan, thick and enormous, refusing to go anywhere and leaves sheets of lacing.
The aroma is massively roasted with almost a burnt malt character. Plenty of cocoa powder and only the faintest hint of chipotle pepper, though it does grow as it warms.
The taste is much like the aroma except for the finish. The start is all about the black malts, heavily roasted, with chocolate and hints of espresso. But the finish is where it gets interesting with the pepper flavors coming out and leaving a serious burn on the palate after each sip.
The mouthfeel is smooth and close to full bodied for a normal porter. This thing almost has the feel of a Baltic porter, which is impressive given the ABV.
There is certainly no doubt that Mikkel knows his way around stouts and porters and this is one of the more interesting ones I’ve had. It’s a big, robust porter with a big dose of peppers in the taste. Certainly not the most drinkable porter, but very complex and tasty for a porter.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Deep dark mahogany. Creamy light brown head. Dry. Lighter medium bodied. Silky smooth. Peppers layered in perfectly, especially in aroma. Chocolate, cocoa round things out with touches of licorice and molasses. A light roast and just enough sweetness to go along with the moderate heat and light smokiness from the peppers. Top notch.
